I am a huge fan of visiting Delphi when visiting the Athens area, so much magical history!

Besides Delphi, you can also visit the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion (you can take a taxi - it's about 30 minutes to an hour away, depending on where in Athens you are). You can also visit one of the small, nearby islands as a day trip - like Hydra. You would take a tour or ferry from Piraeus, which is close to Athens.

I highly recommend a day's boat trip to Aegina, Poros and Hydra. You can book that at travel agents in Athens. Or, you can take the Proastiakos train (adjacent to the Metro at Larissa station) and this way you can visit a seaside town of west Attica, such as Nea Peramos with its beautiful marina and seafront with cafes/restaurants. If visiting Nea Peramos by car you can also visit the nearby tiny town of Pahi with its picturesque fish tavernas and the church on the hill with the breathtaking seaviews. Last, with the Proastiakos train you can go further towards Corinth and visit the beautiful seaside town of Kiato. Check out times and fees beforehand if you use the train as well as local taxi company numbers to pick you up from the train station. Failing that, you may have to walk for about 15-20 minutes from the train station to the coast. Hope this helps!

Just Try to visit Argolis one day tour. The best way is to rent a car Visit Mycenae, Nafplio, Tolo for swimming and the ancient Theater of Epidaurus.
Another your is to visit the ancient Theater and also Porto Heli and Ermioni.

Porto heli is amazing! It has some of the best resorts on the mainland

Going to Meteora was one of the best experiences I had while visiting Greece. The walk up was so exhausting but so worth it to see something so beautiful. I really recommend it to everyone visiting the mainland and wanting to learn more about Greek culture and experience nature.

Visiting the changing of the guards in Athens

I love taking my little cousins to see the changing of the gaurds in Athens, it's one of my favorite things to do in the city and the kids always get a kick out of it. Anyone else?

What is shopping at the Athens laiki (farmers market) like?

I've always wanted to visit an authentic Greek farmers market (this is a pic of the one I go to in Toronto, I love it!). Are there any good ones in downtown Athens? If so, where are they and do you have any tips?
